Age Friendly SA 2018-19 Grants

Age Friendly SA Grants aim to realise the South Australian Government’s vision of creating all-ages-friendly communities that support older South Australians to be involved and active in their communities and contribute to an age friendly South Australia.

Age Friendly SA Grants enable local governments across the state to apply for funding for projects that support older South Australians, including those from diverse communities and backgrounds, to age well, and be recognised for their valued contributions across their lifetime. 

Age Friendly SA 2018-19 Grants include grants of up to $25,000 for local government projects of up to 12 months duration that encourage innovation and kick start sustainable, longer term initiatives which build South Australia’s capacity as an age friendly state.
Grants of up to $45,000 are available for projects comprising regional partnerships of three or more local governments.

Local governments are encouraged to collaborate with non-government, non-profit community organisations, or other relevant partners to deliver projects that support age friendly innovation, active participation, and are inclusive of older LGBTI, CALD and Aboriginal communities.
Age Friendly SA Grant applications are only accepted from local governments.
Local governments can submit more than one application.
